Shell Hydrogen opened its first hydrogen fuel pump (no self-service) Wednesday in a partnership deal with GM. The pump is set to service 11 GM vehicles (like the FedEx one shown here) that will run on the alternative fuel as the Big Three go about spending $350 million in government grants to explore the viability of hydrogen as an automotive fuel. Of course most that are into the debate on alternative fuels know that as of today it still requires the use of fossil fuels to create the hydrogen that will be used in any of these vehicles. I think the refining process (if that's what creating hydrogen is called) needs to be perfected before we start building fleets of h20 cars.
